There’s been a little bit of confusion as to whether Metal Gear Solid V is one thing or two things.

Well, Konami has offered some clarification regarding the situation.

ORIGINAL: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are the same thing and have been revealed as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain at GDC 2013. FOX Engine showcase below. Mind-blowing.
